Bad breath, also known as halitosis, is tricky to overcome sometimes. However, there are various things you can do to help. For starters, consider your oral hygiene habits. Keeping a healthy routine of brushing and flossing each day will help keep your breath fresh and your smile healthy and strong. You can also choose a therapeutic mouthwash that kills germs in your mouth sticking to your teeth. There are also diverse toothpaste options you can try that reduce the plaque and bacteria that can dwell on your teeth.

In a nutshell, there are other dental conditions such as gum disease, cavities or a dental abscess that can cause bad breath. If any of these conditions are creating your lousy breath troubles, be sure to meet with your dentist as quickly as possible. If dry mouth is a concern for your smile, try chewing on sugarless gum and drink plenty of water. This gets saliva flowing in your mouth, which is an asset to your oral health because it washes away bacteria and keeps your smile hydrated, thus supporting your fresh breath.
